With bars, restaurants, hotels, shops and galleries all calling St James’s home, there’s already a lot to discover in the area, but you can get the real inside scoop on these brands thanks to the St James’s One of a Kind series of masterclasses. This series, which includes masterclasses held everywhere from wine cellars to wellness spaces, showcases both the diversity of the area and the dedication that each brand has to its craft. The St. James’s Hotel and Club is letting you in behind the bar with its botanical gin masterclass, so if you’re a gin lover it’s one not to miss.
Held in one of the hotel’s private suites, master mixologist Gianni will take you through a 45-minute masterclass where you’ll be able to taste three different botanical gins with very distinguished flavours. The hotel has 46 different gins from around the world on the menu, from a local British one to a truffle gin. Gianni will be picking out a selection for you to taste that really showcase the botanical elements before you finish with a mixed gin & tonic that you can drink at your leisure.
The £39 ticket also includes a mini bottle of gin to take home and two British tapas plates, like confit lamb breast fritters with apple and mint jelly, Welsh rarebit and smoked haddock fish cakes with tartare sauce, from William’s Bar and Bistro.
